Keeping pace alongside the flagship Air Max series over the years have been several other noteworthy branches from the Nike Running family tree. Names like Pegasus, Structure (Triax) and Tailwind have each carried the baton at various points throughout history, and now we see a model born during an Olympic summer resurrected to run with the benefit of performance enhancement courtesy of its updated cushioning. The Nike Air Max Tailwind 96-12 is exactly what its name would suggest, a blend of the Air Max Tailwind from 1996 coupled with the full-length honeycomb unit you’ll find in stores under the Air Max Tailwind+ 4. Also in stores like Social Status that carry Nike Sportswear product, you’ll find this pair of 96-12s in an OG colorup, a shoe that appears in more images after the jump below.
